Humanity & Inclusion (HI) alongside partners COOPI in Paraguay and Save the Children Peru are excited to announce the launch of our brand new website www.girdamericalatina.org. Our main goal in launching this website is to promote disaster risk management with a focus on inclusion, placing the most vulnerable people at the center of risk management and as rights holders without exclusion or discrimination. It was developed in the context of a regional programme thanks to the support of the people of the United States of America, provided through the Office of Humanitarian Assistance of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID / BHA), and the ECHO Program of the European Union.

The website, entirely in Spanish, provides a wide range of content drawing from the experiences of HI and its partners in the region, including case studies and lessons learned, technical guidelines, news and training content aimed at strengthening the capacities of all actors interested in making their disaster risk management practices more inclusive. The website also disseminates public reference content on the topic.

Among the resources available, we are pleased to introduce our Inclusive Disaster Risk Management Manual and Toolkit which provides guidelines to approach Disaster Risk Management (DRM) with an inclusive lens taking into account factors such as disability, gender, age, ethnicity, among others, and from a rights-based perspective. The IDRM Guide is complemented by a Toolbox whose purpose is to offer a set of tools to apply an inclusive approach in disaster risk analysis, response preparedness, capacity building and response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The guide is currently available in Spanish and will soon be available in English so whatch this space.

www.girdamericalatina.org is the result of months of collective effort to share knowledge and initiatives of actors involved in DRM in the region, and it seeks to ensure an accessible experience for all. The site is constantly evolving and will incorporate new content and functionalities over time. If you have any suggestions or feedback, feel free to let us know on social media or through the website. Check it out and we hope you enjoy the visit.
